Red fighters belonging to the 1st Pulang Bagani Company-New People’s Arym(NPA) ambushed the 10th ID-AFP's 69th IB soldiers yesterday, sustaining four killed and six wounded among the enemy troops. The 1st PBC-NPA carried out the ambush yesterday August 30, at 1:30 p.m. in Barangay Dalagdag, Calinan District,
This recent NPA military offensive against the newly augmented 69th IB and the 10th ID-AFP fascists is a punitive action for the serious violations to human rights and international humanitarian law perpetrated by the AFP against civilians in
That the 10th ID-AFP troops suffered heavy blows versus the people's army, despite the increasing number of its soldiers, nakedly shows the failure of the counter-revolutionary Oplan Bantay Laya II. It has utterly failed to stem the tide of the growing revolutionary movement in the face of intensive and extensive NPA tactical offensives in the region and elsewhere in the country.
